Ham


It was pointed out to me by a very dear friend that Stella might be a bit of a ham. I'm beginning to believe it. Yesterday morning, under my desk, undercover.....

We had a running conversation.
She felt that paw was getting out of line and needed some reprimanding, sort of a straighten up and walk right come to Stella, moment.


Afterwards she felt quite pleased with herself and played the ingenue for the camera.



Looking at these pictures I was noticing all the changes. Her expressions are more adult, her nose is getting longer and losing all of its young puppy appearance ( she might even grow into those ears!). Gene refers to her as Miss Needle Nose ( or "The Sausage" if it's near dinner time). She's in a long body stage right now. Puppyhood is flying by, at 6 months she'll be close to full grown and physical changes will be slight.

But for here and now, we are savoring with abandon all the baby steps.

  3. I love all the Stella baby pix - they're wonderful - and yes, she seems to be a big ham, she just loves the camera.

  5. She definitely knows when she's on camera. I do believe she's a model at heart. :) She certainly is a cutie-pie.

  7. I bow at Stella's feet. She has certainly won me over. I love to play with Mim's JRT. She tells me not to do that, but I do love Jo Beth. Mim said one of our friends said that she couldn't handle her. What's not to handle??

  8. You guys are such enablers! It's so hard not to take a lot of pictures she's such an entertaining puppy and with her coloring, the camera is very kind to her.
    And of course, she IS such a ham. ;-)
